Brave New Voices Festival

The Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival, powered by Youth Speaks, is the only festival of its kind. Every year, over 500 young poets, their mentors, and the nation’s leading artists and cultural workers convene in a different U.S. city for 4-5 days of arts education, artistic expression, and civic engagement.

For the first time ever, Youth Speaks will host the Brave New Voices Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada! We cannot wait to embark on this historic journey with you all bringing youth voice, poetry and story to the city of lights with the support of Zappos, the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, Writer's Block and Black Mountain Institute.
